Hike Description:
This is one of my most favorite hikes. we will be walking through some really wild and beautiful "jungle" setting. We will be  (on occasion) on a narrow sand stone ridge  line  which is part of the marine sedimentary formation known as Santiago Formation which is around 45 million years old.  We will take a break at the very top having reached the  trail where we can see Oak and sycamores in the canyon below . We will hike through dense oak woodland . This is one of the places where I just stand and look at the most amazingly shaped oaks I have ever seen.
